Niger State governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello has charged the traditional institution to remain vigilant for further maintenance of peace and to curtail any act capable of breaking law and order.
He made the appeal at the weekend while presenting staff of office to the 17th Emir of Borgu, Barrister Muhammed Sani Haliru Dantoro, Kitoro IV in New Bussa, Borgu Local Government area of the state.
The governor stressed the need for caution and vigilance on the part of the royal fathers so as to help fish out questionable characters in the society.
“I call on all traditional rulers to be more interested in what happens in their communities. You remain security watchdogs in your domain and by extension the state.
“You must avoid any criminal connivance, as this is capable of ruining any leader”, he said.
The newly installed Emir of Borgu, Barrister Muhammed Sani Haliru Dantoro, Kitoro IV promised to be fair to all his subjects and called on them to come up with meaningful ideas on how to move the Emirate forward.
